Final Friday Challenge with Paper Garden Projects ~

** Second Post for today, be sure to scroll down a little for the new Sketch Girl post - Sketch Girl 17 **

Good Morning!  I cannot get out of my mind that today is Saturday!  Lucky me because it's Friday, so I get another day to ready myself for my stepdaughter's birthday!  Anyhow, I'm back today with the Fourth Friday (really it's the fifth, so we'll just call it the final Friday) Challenge.  We're doing a color challenge this month - Don't Be Blue!  Well, you can be blue, just don't be sad...
Here's our inspiration photo.  Your challenge should you choose to accept is to create a project using these 3 colors.  You can add other colors if you wish - but include at lease a smidgen of each of these 3.

You have till midnight (EST) of Friday May 7 to add a comment to this post with a link your project. We will draw one random winner for the prize.

The rules are:
It must be a newly created project for this challenge - but feel free to combine this challenge with any other ones out there.
We'd love to see all the art you care to share, but each person will only be entered in the drawing once.
The winner will be drawn randomly and announced the following Saturday.
In honor of Mother's Day, the prize is this lovely Rachelle Anne Miller Bundle of Joy stamp.
Fun, huh?  Great!  Get to crafting!  Oh, you want a little inspiration first?  Ok, here is Cheerio Chester!
Chester is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics.  The sky is added with Pebbles Pearlescent chalks and the ground with Koh-I-Noor pencils and OMS.  The background papers are made with the new PTI set A Little Argyle.  Uh oh!  I may use this set a lot...I love it!!!  I really wanted to add the sentiment, "Cheerio!", because he's just such a dapper little fellow and he looks like he's tipping his hat to you.  I couldn't figure out where to place it though!  Now that my head is a bit clearer this morning, I have an idea so I may have to update this picture. ;o) 
Bop on over to the rest of the gardener's blogs for some more amazing inspiration!

Chester looks amazing! Love the coloring and the slight sheen you have captured on his top hat. Also, the layout is great, too. AND, those papers are awesome. LOL! I guess what I'm trying to say is that I LOVE this card!
